Mills, Jonathan N.; Wolf, Patrick J. – School Choice Demonstration Project, 2016
The Louisiana Scholarship Program (LSP) is a statewide initiative offering publicly-funded vouchers to enroll in local private schools to students in low-performing schools with family income no greater than 250 percent of the poverty line. Initially established in 2008 as a pilot program in New Orleans, the LSP was expanded statewide in 2012.…

Mayer, Alisande F.; Wiley, Ellen W.; Wiley, Larry P.; Dees, Dianne C.; Raiford, Simmie A. – Georgia Educational Researcher, 2016
Student achievement of fifth-grade students in 106 Georgia public schools in CRCT reading and mathematics was examined as a function of five characteristics of teachers and schools. The five independent variables used as predictors of CRCT scores were Title I status, teachers' education level, teachers' average years of experience, class size, and…

Straková, Jana; Greger, David; Soukup, Petr – International Studies in Sociology of Education, 2016
The Czech education system is characterised by early tracking and high educational inequalities. The most controversial element of the system is the academic track, which is attended by students after the completion of primary school. The paper focuses on fifth graders' application process and their success in entrance examinations. The process is…

Comfort, Jared – ProQuest LLC, 2016
This dissertation is a mixed methods study of a mid-sized Kansas school district. It explores the relationship between a blended learning approach to instruction and 5th grade student performance on Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments in reading and mathematics. The objectives were to determine what a blended learning environment…

DeSantis, Whitney – ProQuest LLC, 2016
As military dependent students relocate, they enroll in multiple schools throughout their K-12 experience. Frequent mobility can create gaps in achievement. The challenge in the local setting is meeting the needs of military dependent students scoring below grade level standards in math. The purpose of the formative evaluation was to determine the…

Manouchehri, Azita; Yao, Xiangquan; Fleming, Ali; Gomez, Monelle – Athens Journal of Education, 2016
In this work we examined the content of approximately 950 mathematics questions used in measuring achievement among 4th, 5th and 6th graders in the US in an attempt to determine how the current standardized examinations, which were developed to reflect new national curricular mandates, compared to the old measures used for the same purpose. Using…

Reeger, Adam; Gaasedelen, Owen; Welch, Catherine; Dunbar, Stephen – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
Student Growth Percentiles (SGPs) are increasingly being used in evaluations of teacher effectiveness. This study investigates two properties of SGPs: 1) SGP sensitivity to reference group characteristics such as sample size, free and reduced lunch (FRL) status, and English language learner (ELL) status; and 2) variation in score changes across…

Petersen, Jennifer Lee; Hyde, Janet Shibley – Educational Psychology, 2017
Although many studies have documented developmental change in mathematics motivation, little is known about how these trends predict math performance. A sample of 288 participants from the United States reported their perceived math ability, math utility value and math interest in 5th, 7th and 9th grades. Latent growth curve models estimated…

Jacob, Robin; Hill, Heather; Corey, Doug – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2017
In this paper, we describe findings from a three-year evaluation of a well-developed mathematics professional development program that is commercially available on a wide scale. The professional development is designed to improve teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching and to enable them to elicit more student thinking and reasoning during…

Jordan, Nancy C.; Resnick, Ilyse; Rodrigues, Jessica; Hansen, Nicole; Dyson, Nancy – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2017
The goal of the present article is to synthesize findings to date from the Delaware Longitudinal Study of Fraction Learning. The study followed a large cohort of children (N = 536) between Grades 3 and 6. The findings showed that many students, especially those with diagnosed learning disabilities, made minimal growth in fraction knowledge and…

Reardon, Sean F.; Hinze-Pifer, Rebecca – Stanford Center for Education Policy Analysis, 2017
A comparison of Chicago public school students' standardized test scores in 2009-2014 with those of public students across the U.S. reveals two striking patterns. First, Chicago students' scores improved dramatically more, on average, between third and eighth grade than those of the average student in the U.S. This is true for students of all…

Zank, Alicia A. – Online Submission, 2015
The purpose of the study is to determine what effects explicit and systematic math intervention instruction will have on student's performance on math assessments. The study will focus on a small group of fifth grade students that have been identified as needing targeted intervention (tier 2) and intensive interventions (tier 1) through the…

Zhang, Xiaofen; Clements, M. A.; Ellerton, Nerida F. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2015
Area-model representations seem to have been dominant in the teaching and learning of fractions, especially in primary school mathematics curricula. In this study, we investigated 40 fifth grade children's understandings of the unit fractions, 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4, represented through a variety of different models. Analyses of pre-teaching test and…

Zhang, Xiaofen; Clements, M. A.; Ellerton, Nerida F. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2015
This study investigated how fifth-grade children's concept images of the unit fractions represented by the symbols 1/2, 1/3/ and 1/4 changed as a result of their participation in an instructional intervention based on multiple embodiments of fraction concepts. The participants' concept images were examined through pre- and post-teaching written…

Broza, Orit; Kolikant, Yifat Ben-David – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2015
The study set out to discover what characterizes the meaningful learning of mathematics among low-achieving students (LAS) and to highlight the challenges their characteristics pose for scaffolding, in particular for its adaptive core: contingent teaching. The setting was an extracurricular program for teaching meaningful mathematics to LAS…
